I HATE the concept of community service that high schools and colleges use. For this exact reason. Real activism and service (that is primarily done by the oppressed out of necessity or in support of their own community) is never counted.
PoC, “third-world”/Global South people and poor people DON’T exist just so some pretentious little white/Western bourgeois fuck can improve their resume and boost their white savior ego. (via the-uncensored-she)
friendly reminder that:
- you are not weak if you want meds for your disorder
- you are not weak if you relapse once
- you are not weak if you relapse a thousand times
- you are not weak if some kinds of therapy don’t work for you
- you are not weak if some kinds of meds don’t work for you
- you are not weak if you have a mental disorder.
